Rather than take a complete blogging break, I've decided to show you some of our favorite decorations. The first is our Hummel nativity. We were married in November, and for our first Christmas we bought the figurines of the Holy Family. It was a fairly large purchase for us at the time. Back in those days nurses were not well paid, and interns got a token stipend. Each year we added at least one more figurine. And each year we treasured our growing nativity. After several years, we were able to purchase the remaining figures needed to complete the set.
It always has a place of prominence in our home and has survived two children and several dogs. The light in the stable shines down on the Baby Jesus and we too are filled with the light when we look on it.
You will note that I have turned on comment moderation, thanks to a spammer who decided to hit upon me. I hope you will continue to comment. I'll turn it off soon.
I do hope all of you are enjoying this wonderful season of the year.
